Great guide. I managed to smash all the 115 and below ubers so far (legacy of blood being the toughest due to no summons) but i'm just wondering where do you find Maltheal pieces?
I'm in single player but i've been farming K3K Hell since 115 (almost 119 now) and I still haven't found a single mid gear piece. it's really shocking since I thought the set drop bias would be in my favor. Maybe i'll find some at Duncraig?

i went for the blood thorns route btw.

So many of the SU/SSU recommendations are just trash.
Anything cold damage related is for the %cold damage only, the -%res is irrelevant on UMP (you get it all for free).
You're better of with quiet shrine crafts than SU/SSU's, get all the good +skills, 0-skills and procs.

Just wondering how you get around the massive mana costs.. I run oom in about 7 autos even while chugging mana pots.
Using basically the recommended set up on lemurs

2 words: Attack rating. ITD doesnt work on bosses.

You didn't put more than one skill point in Lemurs did you? I feel like you did if you are having mana issues.
Respec and 1 point it.

Lemurs (or thorns) does not use attack rating, why would you even equip ITD gear for an ability that does not require a 'hit roll'.
It's a spell cast that uses attack animation, let's not over complicate things.

Why talk about something you dont understand? You get ITD from one of the uh passives for free, and the melee swing that procs lemures and blood thorns does use attack rating, and you dont get life/mana on hit if you miss that melee swing.

LMAO, since when did UMP care about life/mana on hit? Not since 2012 brother. I understand fine.

Regen thousands of life per second passively, done.
A few hundred life on attack, who gives a fuck?

No, you are just barfing comments here again, so i can definetly see that you dont understand. Mana on hit mo'd on weapon is how you sustain mana if you use blood thorns or lemures.
